SFFS: Another Snippet from THE CURE

Well, after a week off to take care of my table at ConQuest, I'm back in the saddle for another week of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday posting. I will, however, mention that because of some impending surgery (Friday), I may be a bit slow getting around to all of the other posts to leave comments. To keep things in line with my previous post, I'm pulling another snippet from my standalone novel, The Cure..

Last week, we were playing with zombie mice. This week, Mila is confronted by a pair of Guardians, religious zealots on her planet, who've come to provide a "warning" to her.

She looked around for anything to aid in her defense. These two hadn’t just come to give her a warning. If they’d not meant to harm her, they could have just phoned in their warning.

“You need to end your research.”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about. My cures save lives.”

The woman laughed. “Don’t be coy. We know all about Project Genesis.”

She’d known these people were here for it, but the fact they mentioned it by name still shocked her.

Unfortunately, it seems that "secret" projects haven't stayed secret...and maybe, if you're all good, I'll continue this snippet where it left off next week. In the meantime, you could read the entire book, by picking up your own copy of  The Cure. Be sure to go check out the rest of the Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday snippets. And again, I'd be remiss in not letting my legions of Aston fans know that although this is a standalone novel, it does come into play with a future Aston novel. So stay tuned!
